Let Liberty Ring

Hi everyone and welcome to the continuation of the Country's Birthday at the Card A Day Blog.  Well I've been saving this piece of blue stars on the red paper for a layout and just haven't used it so I decided I would use it with the Liberty Bell for my card.  I combined it with the red metallic paper that I embossed with the stars folder.

The Liberty Bell is cut from the Stand and Salute Cartridge.  I cut it out of a scrap of DCWV silver metallic paper then inked it with burgundy ink to make it a little bit aged.  I added a blue ribbon at the bottom of the page.

I cut the stars paper again for the inside of my card then added a white journaling mat cut so there is a star border around the mat.

Thanks for stopping by.
